This Film Is 100 Years Old is a site where I watch and review films that are 100 years old (or sometimes even more). Films I've looked at so far include Lotte Reiniger's first ever cartoon, the first appearance of Felix The Cat and a minute long piece of footage of a printing press in motion, as well as the first appearance of Santa Claus, 121 years ago.

Rotten Tomatoes scores can be very helpful when trying to figure out what movie to watch, but I find their website to be incredibly slow and frustrating to navigate. Since Rotten Tomatoes has an API, I decided to make Quick Rotten as a way to quickly look up Rotten Tomatoes scores and get a sense of what critics think of new releases. My friend John Holdun then chipped in to make it look pretty.
MostlyFilm, a blog I'm involved with. As the title says, mostly film writing but some other reviews/essays/criticism as well.
So far, writing about: Alex Cox, "Meek's Cutoff", the upcoming "John Carter of Mars", country music in the movies, Herzog and Wenders 3D films, Christian Marclay’s "The Clock", recent CD releases. Oh and, calling Jamie Oliver a big gurning tit and the premise of his new show "colossally stupid and offensive".
An international online magazine devoted to cinema and television - it currently contains a small number of reviews, but this will hopefully be extended to include director/actor profiles, genre profiles, and film and television book reviews.
